      When one of our sons asked for the recipes for Grandma's Christmas Turban, Grandma wrote down the recipe in 2018. Here you will find the literal recipe, not yet made by us.

      Please note that Grandma makes the turban with an old gas oven (ETNA)! So let's experiment with the gas setting / temperatures!


      Melt butter,

      Grate carrot.

      Mix the carrot, sugar, salt, eggs and flour well.

      Add nuts, raisins, cinnamon and Amaretto and mix well.

      Place in the mould.

      Preheat the gas setting to approximately 175 degrees and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. In the middle of the oven.


      Soften butter, add cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla sugar and mix until smooth. Store in the refrigerator.

      Spread over the cake slice after cutting.
